    I'll take the Moderators advice and answer the form questions that were suggested. I have been reading posts here for the past day or so and think this is a most informative community and cant' wait to start posting!

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Not new, had a few yard birds several years back. Had an opportunity to get a few with sister-in-law recently so I jumped on it.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    ten, and watching her incubator as I type this (she had to go out of town for an emergency), two out who knows how many more to go?

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    I have five Barred Rocks. It was supposed to be ten, but the other five are mystery birds. I'm thinking Black Java? Can't post pics yet but
    will ASAP in appropriate forum area.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    searching for chicken info online

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I really enjoy anything outdoors, writing, photograpy, sewing, reading, cooking...the list goes on and on!!!

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    Moved to Tennessee with BF when his sister needed help on her small farm after her husband passed away. We've been together for 14
    years and have a two-year-old Black Lab named Amanda (but call her by any pork related product: HAManda, HAMmy, HAMhock, I'm sure you
    get the picture) and adopted daughters six year old Shepherd mix, Dude.
